CBAP Exam Prep – IIBA Business Analysis Certification Training Course

Attend our CBAP Training and attain the best business analysis certification today. The CBAP certification (Certified Business Analysis Professional) is the highest business analysis certification for a business analyst. A certified business analysis professional CBAP designation will help you earn a higher salary than a business analyst that is not.  The reason is that employers see a certified business analyst as someone who is serious about business analysis and possesses the right business analysis education, competencies or knowledge to get the job done.

The CBAP certification requires a minimum of 5 years (7500 hours) of experience to sit for the exam.  If you have less than that, you can go for the CCBA certification (Certified Competency in Business Analysis), also from the IIBA which only requires 3 years of experience.  Earning the CBAP or CCBA business analyst credentials will be the best step to take in becoming a certified business analysis professional.

We are an IIBA Endorsed Education Provider (IIBA EEP) and are one of few authorized training institutes to provide certification courses in business analysis in USA and Dubai.  We offer a variety of business analysis training courses, such as practical workshops and seminars, CBAP training and CCBA exam preparation boot camps, fundamentals of business analysis, business analysis short courses, and longer duration business analyst training programs for corporations.  Most of the training courses we offer are centered on the IIBA’s Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK), which is the global standard for best practices in business analysis.

To earn business analyst professional certification, it is highly recommended that you go for either CBAP or CCBA.  The CBAP or CCBA certifications are earned by passing a multiple-choice examination that is based on IIBA’s Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK).  We offer many accredited BA training courses that can help you in achieving the CBAP or CCBA certifications.

So, how does a business analyst become certified as a CBAP or CCBA?

The first thing you need to do is locate an IIBA Endorsed Education Provider (IIBA EEP), who offers approved CBAP training or business analysis professional certification classroom training courses and programs, or CBAP boot camps. We are one of few IIBA approved providers who provide such certified business analysis trainings and workshops.

Next, review our published list of sessions for CBAP training courses in your area (e.g. Dubai, Boston, etc..).  Select the training dates that suit you best and inquire about availability of seats in that session.  Our customer service agents will then contact you and walk you through the registration process.  You can also call us directly and we will be glad to go over the CBAP certification process and requirements, as well as the course details, CBAP examination format, qualification requirements, CBAP exam fees, and total CBAP certification costs.

During the cbap training course, we provide you with all the CBAP study materials and sample exam test questions that you will need to prepare for and pass the exam on your first try.  We will go over all the BABOK knowledge areas, as well as the exam format and what to expect and how to prepare for the CBAP certification exam.  We also assist you with the CBAP exam application process with the IIBA.  Our expert instructor will provide you with excellent advice on the value of CBAP certification during the cbap training, and how it will help in job placement as a business analyst.

What is Business Analysis?

Business analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development. The person who carries out this task is called a business analyst or BA.

Those BA’s who work solely on developing software systems may be called IT Business Analysts, Technical Business Analysts, Online Business Analysts or Systems Analysts.

Business analysis, as a discipline, has a heavy overlap with requirements analysis sometimes also called requirements engineering, but focuses on identifying the changes to an organization that are required for it to achieve strategic goals. These changes include changes to strategies, structures, policies, processes, and information systems.
